  10. Let me clarify. It was built at Gibson by John Walker, in a batch of I believe 3, that was commissioned by Gary Burnett. Gary opened up his Vintage Gibson collection when Gibson was retooling. It is speced off the '37 J-35 that is on the cover of The Gibson Fabulous Flattops book which is owned by Gary Burnett as are a majority of the vintage guitars represented in the book. It's not like periodic batches that Gibson or Fuller issues, also fine guitars. Not that mine is any better or worse. It is what it is...a great Gibson guitar that has served me well for a long time. I hope that helps and thanks for letting me be apart of the discussion - Frank
  11. Mine is indeed built by John Walker but it's not from a Gibson reissue batch. I bought it through Gary Burnett of Bee-3 Vintage in Ashville NC. It was built to the specs of the '37 J-35 which is on the cover of the Gibson Fabulous Flattops book. Gary owns that guitar and had a few built to it's specs. It's essentially a '37 built in '95. Gibson's Custom Shop was separate from it's production line at that time. I don't know for sure but I don't believe it is now.
  12. Dale is the real deal. Don't hesitate to get one of his guitars.

  15. I'm glad you folks enjoyed the input. This is a great forum and after reading different topics, I thought I might as well chime in. I hang my hat in southern NJ for now and travel to gigs wherever they may be. Thanks again.- Frank
  16. I've owned and primarily play a Gibson Montana J-35 since 1995. At that time, many vintage 35's were not on the market and when they were they were out of my reach. It was a great guitar then and an even better guitar now. Here's a few examples. Hope you enjoy them. - Frank Fotusky http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH1MjBmCwzw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3n0hswj3JE
